TemporaryEstimated: $37,000 - $51,000 a year
The Houston office of McGuireWoods is currently accepting applications from rising 2Ls for our 2020 Summer Associate Program.
McGuireWoods summer associates are selected because they stand out; we strive to attract high-performing individuals. In return, we offer involvement in our lawyers daily activities attending depositions, corporate closings, trials and appellate arguments. In addition to preparing research memoranda, summer associates also draft pleadings, briefs and corporate transaction documents. We also offer special training opportunities, social events and a firm-wide summer associate retreat.
Since we do not have a formal rotation process, we encourage our summer associates to select the projects they want to work on and craft their own summer experience as they work to find the right practice area fit.
McGuireWoods has been a strong, well-respected and expanding firm for 185 years.
